Scottie Scheffler beats Patrick Cantlay in playoff to claim maiden PGA Tour title

Scottie Scheffler won his maiden PGA Tour title after beating Patrick Cantlay in a playoff at the WM Phoenix Open.

The 25-year-old made four birdies in five holes during the fourth round but missed an opportunity on his final hole to win the title in the usual fashion.

He finished with a score of 67 to go four under for the day – level on 16 under alongside Cantlay – before he sealed a win in the play-off with a 25-foot birdie on the third hole.

“Patrick (Cantlay) is obviously a phenomenal player and I knew one of us was going to have to make a birdie,” Scheffler said.

“Par wasn’t going to do it.

This is a really hard tee ball for me. It’s hard for me to get it in play, so I knew if I had an opportunity I really had to take advantage of it.”
